Frustration

I have not blogged much here recently because so much has been going on and I have no clue where to start. I am so frustrated with everything.

February-
Shunt revision, allergic reaction to dermabond, wound infection, shunt track infection, hospital stay, PICC line, more allergic reactions to vanco, ceftriaxone, oxacillin, ancef, clindamycin, at home IV antibiotics, strep throat, dressing changes, another hospital stay.

March-
PICC line removed, worsening of head and belly pain, abd pain, local ER for "strep throat?", admitted for UTI to local hospital, transferred the next day to U of C Comer, shunt tap, blood work, xrays, transfer to PICU, sedated, shunt externalized at bedside, ultrasound, surgery to remove shunt, meningitis, peritonitis, CT Scan, lots of pain, transferred to neuro floor

April-
Lots of pain, nausea, vomiting, CSF leak, hallucinations, 6th cranial nerve palsy, my mom has a heart attack, surgery to replace shunt, allergic reaction to Shunt, allergist, steroids..... and so it goes

May-
A lot of the same

June-
Still more of the same

The same thing is that this is just Lindsay. Life is frustrating and I just need a brief break. :)
